River Teifi coracle, c 1930.

Description

Model (scale 1:6). In Wales and the Welsh Marches, coracles have been employed for centuries as river fishing craft. There are many types, but they fall into two clases; one bowl-shaped and the other almost square. This model represents one from the river Teifi, in south-west Wales. There were no standard dimensions, as the important consideration for these one-man craft was the weight and stature of the owner. They were suitable for fast flowing rivers, and light enough to be carried on the owner's back.
